Smoothie Time

We've been talking about chocolate, sweet things and love lately, but the truth is, around our studio, you'd be hard pressed to find many sugary things!  It's true.  You'd be more likely to find a green smoothie, and sometimes we can be very creative with the ingredients.  Now, we may not put shitake mushrooms or bark in it, like the above graphic suggests, but it will be loaded with lots of green things. We could talk for days about the benefits of green things, but we find great inspiration from this beautiful quote:

"Look! I have given you every seed-bearing plant that grows on the earth and every fruit-bearing tree. They will be your food and nourishment."  Genesis 1:29 - The Voice 

  When we discovered that the original word for the seed-bearing plants included green, grass-like plants, we took a trip to the grocery store for wheat grass, spinach, kale and anything green!  Wow, do we notice a difference when we start our day sipping on one of these green smoothies.  Our recipe varies each day, so we're not including a recipe here, but you can find bushels of green smoothie recipes online, and there's one out there that will make you fall in love with everything green!
